• What we'll do
In the 4th London BotFramework meetup we're extremely privileged to have a great session from two Microsoft MVPs: *Jessica Engström* and *Jimmy Engström*:

*Jessica* is on her way to speak at NDC London later in the week, and will be giving us a sneak preview of that session, which covers the fascinating concept of *Conversational UX*. If you’ve been building any bots of your own, or are planning to do so, then you’ll know just how hard it is to get the UX right when the content you can present to you user is limited to text and maybe an image or two or perhaps just audio.

Being a geek shows in all parts of her life, whether it be organizing hackathons, running a user group and a podcast with her husband, game nights (retro or VR/MR) with friends, just catching the latest superhero movie or speaking internationally at conferences.

Her favorite topics is UX/UI and Mixed reality and other futuristic tech. She's a Windows Development MVP. Together with her husband she runs a company called "AZM dev" which is focused on HoloLens and Windows development.

*Jimmy* has some fantastic content comparing bots for Cortana, Alexa, and Google. Understanding the key differences between these platforms is going to benefit anyone working on a bot backend that they’re aiming to use in as many places as possible.

During the day Jimmy is a .NET developer and he does all the fun stuff during his spare time. He and his wife run a code intensive user group (Coding After Work) that focuses on helping participants with code and design problems, and a podcast with the same name.

** Refreshments **
As per usual, the extremely generous JustEat will be providing beers, soft drinks, and pizza to keep us energised throughout the evening. Just bring your lovely selves and bask in the glow of an awesome session!
